Cricket, who previously lived her life outside in a kennel, has come a long way in a very short time with her two foster families. And she’s settled in so well that we are excited to say that we have another Foster WIN to announce, because her new dad has decided that she’s just gonna stay put where she is. She now has a furever sister, too, Gracie, also a GSP.
When asked what made her dad know that she was family, he said, “She’s a wonderful and loving dog and great companion to my Gracie. She helps motivate me to get up and exercise each morning and they both put a smile on my face. She gets so excited about our golf cart rides. She and Gracie have bonded better than I could have expected. Great match.“
Cricket goes on long walks (on and off leash daily), rides in the golf cart twice a day, and lives on a lake where they go out on the pontoon boat. Her dad has been known to share his sausage and biscuit and his lunch meat with his girls and he hand feeds them a small ice cream treat each night. It’s clear to us that Cricket is right where she belongs and we are so grateful to Randy and Gracie for working so hard with her and for loving her and making her family, and also to the Murphy family for fostering her first and helping her so much! We just love a happy ending!
Tony has had quite the adventure in rescue…lost (or abandoned) in a forest, he found his way to a Good Samaritan who contacted SEGSP then brought to a shelter. He was temp fostered in one home (thank you Tina and Alan), then fostered in another for his heartworm treatment (thank you to the Herndon family), then arrived at his last foster home to find his forever home. Turns out, his last foster home “IS” his forever home! Sometimes the adoption journey is a winding road. We are so happy for Tony, now called Maverick. Congratulations to the Rhoades family and Maverick!
Our coordinators in the Carolinas have A LOT to be thankful for with 3 adoptions in the last week! Berry, now Lexie, has also found her forever home with new dad Darrin and his son. They have a lot of land for Lexie to explore and she is certainly going to be living her best life!
Thank you to Peyton and family for fostering her – it was definitely a bittersweet moment for them!
Odin has found his forever family! Odin and his sister Freya were rescued by a good Samaritan after almost being hit by a car. Thank you to his foster parents Michelle and Jen for taking such good care of Odin and finding the perfect family to adopt him. Congratulations to Odin and the Swedalla family!
Amy (FL) has found her forever home! She now has a GSP brother Buddy and they play and get along beautifully. Her new mom Elizabeth uses the same trainer that Amy has been working with so she will continue with her training that she loves so much. A HUGE thank you to her foster parents Claudine and Jim who gave Amy lots of TLC and went through a lot of applications searching for the perfect fit. Congrats Amy, Elizabeth and Buddy!
May we have your attention, please? Maverick, being fostered in Tennessee, has an important announcement! He has decided that being able to chase rabbits, play on the farm and hang out with his foster brother Bo. Sounds just about perfect, and since he’s enjoyed it so much during his foster time there, he asked his foster dad if he could just go ahead and stay forever. And of course, his foster dad said he absolutely could! Congratulations to Maverick, new brother Bo and dad, Ted! We are so happy for you all!
Freya (SC; aka Miss Priss), one of the two puppies brought into rescue after almost being hit by a car, has officially been adopted by her foster family. She’s helped her canine sibling exercise more, joins her mom on PetSmart visits and has determined she is more than worthy of sleeping on furniture (certainly not the bare ground). YAY Freya and congratulations to the Korngiebel family!
Duke has found his forever home! He had quite a weekend traveling from his foster home in FL to his forever home in NC. Thank you to our transporters Earendil, Ellen, Maggie, Nick, Beth, Sharon, Susan, Cynthia and Melissa. And a big thank you to Beth Williams with the Clairmont Animal Hospital for hosting Duke overnight. Of course we are very grateful for Earendil who fostered Duke. We know this was a bittersweet moment for him since this was his first foster dog and he loves Duke so it was very hard to say goodbye. However we know beyond a shadow of doubt that he chose an amazing home for Duke. Congratulations Melissa (and Duke)! We are looking forward to photos at his new home…
